As others have said, this isn't a PWE or Cryptic issue, but a Steam issue. Steam has had issues with their European prices for a very, very long time. If you're not in North America, 90% of the time it's cheaper to get it from a brick&mortar store than from Steam because Steam has ridiculously stupid price conversion methods.

Like a game that's $60 USD being 60 Euros. That's 74 USD!
Its not cheaper in the US, the US just doesn't have VAT, while most of the EU does.

Another thing people always conveniently forget is that money value is constantly changing. So I assume the GBP isue comes from exchange rate + VAT. This does btw not get updated every day but in intervalls(last probably along with zen conversion) -> So assume that it happened on a bad day for the GBP.

If you don't have to pay tax, then it's cheaper.
You're paying less.
